                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Practice pays for HARNY BLACK, who pummelled 
DISHONEST JUSTICE, to pocket 14 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
DISHONEST JUSTICE was winsome, after beating SHILLIS VAIR and seeing her lose 8 
points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by HALGAR SNAGTOOTH, 
of SAND DANCERS, who despite a 20-18-1 couldn't overcome LIN TIRIAN's Number 1.  So 
who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds 
like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of GIRLS X3 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of 
GIRLS X3 found their efforts at combat frustrated as IRON MEN apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in LIN TIRIAN is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Gabrielle Reece -- Ya know, if I wasn't an all-around masterpiece of a guy, getting
beat on by a woman would give me an inferiority complex. -- Red Coulter

Danni Rogers -- You've gotta do it, don't you?  Men don't like forceful women.  Try
taking a more low-key approach, huh? -- Halgar Snagtooth

Medusa -- Nope, I've looked at it from all angles, and snakes-for-hair just doesn't
cut it for me. -- Shillis Vair
P.S.  Oops, I didn't mean to kill YOU, I was just trying to subdue some of the
snakes.

Dixie Bubbles -- Darned elf. -- Tover Duck

Sandy Stratton -- Oh, wow, I'm in SERIOUS trouble now, aren't I? -- Harny Black

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
